    Header Color / Header Text Color

    Asked by michaelroback on February 28, 2013 at 01:54 PM

    I am working on a form, and no matter what I do, I cannot change the header color or text. Must be a problem with the tempate. I have tried the varous ideas but as soon as I enter the HTML code or inject a CSS command, it goes back to the way it was, black with orange text. This part of the form template despirately needs the attention of Jotform programmers. Great product, but if it is this much trouble it is not worth the effort. Please help.

    Hello michaelroback, the problem is in the CSS code you injected. You put a wrong syntax structure. Although sometimes they are allowed to some browser but sometimes they don't so it is best to follow the standard one.

    .form-header (color:cyan;) .form-taxt (color:yellow;)

    You should use braces instead of parentheses.

    .form-header {color:cyan;} .form-taxt {color:yellow;}

    Also, I think there is no .form-taxt but you could have mispelled it but by browsing the source code of the form there is no .form-text either.

    If I got you correctly, do you want to make the background of the header transparent? This one should do the trick.

    .form-header {color:cyan;} .form-header-group{background:transparent}

    Please let us know if this solves your problem. Thanks.
